Exploring the limitations of 14C bomb-pulse dating on human tissue samples

Georgiadou, Elisavet LU (2012)
Abstract
The aim of this work, which will be part of the PhD work of the author of this report, was to evaluate the precision and accuracy expected from bomb-pulse dating of human tissue, focusing on the uncertainties introduced by variation in 14C in the human diet. Such variations may be caused by releases from nuclear installations, hospitals and laboratories using 14C, use of fossil fuels as well as variations in the type of diet consumed (e.g. the percentage of marine food). All this affect the radiocarbon dating of human tissues (Stenström et al. 2010; Georgiadou and Stenström 2010).
